Sketch the resultant of the following force vectors using the tail-to-head method
by first determining the resultant in the x- and y-directions:
F1 = 5,2 N in the positive y-direction
F2 = 7,5 N in the negative y-direction
F3 = 4,8 N in the positive y-direction
F4 = 6,3 N in the negative x-direction

We choose a scale of 2 N : 1 cm.

We first determine Rx

Draw the Cartesian plane with the vectors in the x-direction:

This is Rx since it is the only vector in the x-direction.

Secondly determine Ry

Next we draw the Cartesian plane with the vectors in the y-direction:

Now we draw the resultant vectors, Ry and Rx head-to-tail:
